Orr: In January, the C.I.A. accused intelligence committee staffers of improperly accessing classified files while investigating the C.I.A.'s harsh interrogations of al Qaeda prisoners. Senators fired back accusing the C.I.A. of spying on the committees' investigators, an allegation C.I.A. Director John Brennan flatly denied. Brennan: As far as the allegations of, you know, C.I.A. hacking into, you know, Senate computers, nothing could be further from the truth. We wouldn't do that. I mean that's-- that's just beyond the--, you know, the scope of reason. Orr: But the C.I.A.'s own inspector general determined the agency did spy on Senate investigators. I.G. findings released today revealed five agency employees improperly accessed committee files and reviewed some of the e-mails of committee staff members.

James, it's expected to be highly critical of the C.I.A.'s actions after 9/11.
